Perhaps maybe it's something less invasive and maybe less expensive to get a decent internet connection where you are.

We researched this heavily and unfortunately none of the providers would work - monthly limits being the most common problem.

FIOS is likely our best hope, maybe in a few years.


Speaking of iOS, any clues?    Just kidding, pardon me!

If you get multiple servers for your area, try 'em all.  There's one server listed that I can lean out my window and spit on but they give pretty bad responses compared to one farther away.

Ken what are you on?  dialup 56 K?? 


North Korea even laughs at Ken's connection 


Ouch and double-ouch. DSL is all I can get unless I wish to pay Comcast $10k to run a cable up my driveway.  Installing a phone line up the same distance? Free.  How about a natural gas line? Free.  Must be some seriously nice coax.


When I worked as a cable installer 10 years ago., if you bought the internet,, Shaw Cable would install the cable even if it was a 1000 feet up a private driveway, no charge! ..  ( I hated those jobs)..

So what if you installed the cable (@.10 cents a foot) say underground within a plastic tube from your house to the street ,would they then put a booster on one end and do the job from your end of the wire??? and you save $10,000 .. ?? Or is your driveway a few kilometers in length??, ( kinda like the Hearst castle in California..... ) .. 
In the 60's, People took Acid to make the world Weird. Now the World is weird and People take Prozac to make it Normal.

Downpload speed isn't too bad, it should be 25MB, but my upload speed should be 3.5MB, so I'm just over 50%.

Driveway is 1300 ft - I expected to pay something, just not 10k.  They will in no circumstances work with wiring they did not lay.  Trust me we've tried everything.

Try having them drop a box at the street? Run a LAN cable up your driveway - will need repeaters but that would be less than 10k.

Too low for what I pay for.
Unfortunately, I can't use DVDprofiler at the moment due to lack of a Windows computer.

b, your ping is awful but I'd take that upload speed any day of the week. 

Ping is so bad, because he seems to use a proxy (take a look at the distance...).

No proxy, rather distant server. I could switch on Tor but the result would be random, of course.

Here's my Current Ken Speed™ (and distance):
